Abstract
The election of the village head is not merely a struggle for power or how the campaign strategy is carried out in order to get support from the village community, but more than that concerning prestige, self-esteem and honour so often in various regions the process of electing the village head causes conflict in the community. Indonesia has a peculiarity in naming it according to its identity. Last October 21, 2017. A total of 76 village (Nagori) in Simalungun District carried out the Election of Village Heads (Pangulu Nagori) simultaneously. A total of 253 candidates from various backgrounds also fought for the position of Village Heads (Pangulu Nagori). Of course the elections in the general election from the presidential elections, legislative elections, regional head elections to the election of village heads are never separated from the battle of invisible political power. The "invisible" power is the planting of doctrine and ideology over others through subtle ways. The view of Hidden Power is part of John Gaventa's theory of the Powercube Theory to understand power as a control of a person or group against other people or groups. The results of this study found how the hidden power work patterns, hidden power pangulu, selection of simultaneous village head (pangulu nagori) in Simalungun and power relations were built.
